Jason Wu, President

President at ApexCare
I first became aware of the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease ten years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with this disease.I saw firsthand how critical it was to have a loving family or caregiver to ensure my grandmother’s safety and daily well-being.My grandmother was fortunate enough to have close family members who cared for her as her Alzheimer’s disease progressed.

Since then, I have had a strong interest in helping and supporting our senior community as they age and are unable to care for themselves.Coming from a family of physicians, I am excited to be involved in the medical community by providing the highest levels of non-clinical in-home care to our clients and their families.With my work experience, I firmly believe that ApexCare can touch many lives and have a great impact on our local senior community.

Prior to joining ApexCare, I worked in a wide variety of industries and have owned multiple businesses ranging from construction to mortgage banking.Outside of work, I am an active youth soccer and basketball coach, having coached recreational soccer for over 8 years and elementary school basketball for over 4 years.I graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.My career has been focused on building great organizations that deliver the highest absolute levels of service to our clients.I look forward to continuing this passion with ApexCare.
